ford 6 speed trans

We just traded coaches and the new one has a 6 speed mated to the V-10. The old 5 speed had a "grade brake" type feature and the new one does not seem to kick down so I am guessing it does not have such a feature. I loved it on the old coach but I have to admit the new 6 speed is a big step forward! Any input on the missing "grade brake"? Thanks.

RE: Loadmaster tugs

Mike I am not sure what model we have as I can not locate a model number. What I am curious about is what the electronics are that make it work. I understand the golf cart transaxle and the chain drive but all the relays are beyond me. I simply want to know the why and how of each part so I can replace as needed. I am actually shocked that no one has picked up production as I find ours to be the "go to" device!

Loadmaster tugs

We have an old loadmaster/towmaster tug built by the Fab Shop in Kansas. I was trying to find information on them as it need overhauled and it appears they are no longer in business. Does anyone have any insight? It is a great product and we us it all the time for moving boats in the barn. Thanks!

A/C off of 20 amp service?

Has anyone ever heard of a single a/c unit not being able to start and run on a 20amp shore power circuit? We bought a new coach and the dealer says don't run a/c unless connected to a 30 amp service or connected to the gen. They say it will cook the compressor. We have always run a/c units in trailers or coaches off a 20 amp circuit without a problem when at home so I am perplexed about what I am missing?? Thoughts?

for better or worse traded off the old coach

For better or worse we traded off our old friend this weekend for a new 2016 Itasca Sunstar 31BE. While we despise the metal bins that Winne uses, at the end of the day a 20K difference to get roto-cast storage bins just was not worth it. The bins on the old Sightseer were literally rotting off. At first glance the Sunstar is definitely down the food chain from the Sightseer. It has more road noise and the furniture and cockpit seats are not as nice as the Sightseer but it is very adequate for our needs and will serve its purpose until we get to retirement and perhaps even into retirement with a few minor upgrades. The new Ford 6 speed transmission is very nice to drive and is a big improvement over the older five speed.

RE: FR3 28DS

Thanks wildtoad we just want a short class A with a king that does not have to fold over when the slide is in. I will look at the ACE floorplans.

RE: FR3 28DS

Geez Bill Great idea.......never thought about the obvious! We don't have a dealer close by so I thought I would ask here as the online floorplan does not show if it is solid or sectioned. Generally the online forums are great sources for like minded folks but obviously you don't fit that mold. Feel free not to offer any more advice.

FR3 28DS

Is the king bed in the rear a solid mattress or is it one that is two pieces when the slide is in. We are looking for a coach that is short with a king. Thanks!

length to wheel base ratio

I seem to recall a thread about 8 years ago concerning the best ratio for handling and I can not find it. Does anyone know the best length to wheel base ratio? Thanks!

Navion with a gas engine?

I stumbled across a 2008 Navion with a gas engine. It looks like it was an option back then so I don't think this was an after market rehab but I have never heard of a gas navion. Does anyone have any experience with one?

RE: Where is Winnebago in the Gasser lineup?

Good grief folks give Mondooker a break. I agree that over analysis leads to paralysis but some folks just like to think about every angle trying for the perfect coach. I happen to be a person who reads and re-reads instructions before using something new. My Wife just goes blasting off at full throttle pushing buttons or grabbing pieces and sticking things together. We both get to the end result in about the same time. As for coaches our first was a Coachman Mirada that we bought after a ten minute test drive and 10 minute inspection and then promptly jumped into the new coach and drove it 300 miles to Cedar Point and Back. It was a great coach and I would buy another Coachman in a heart beat. We traded the coachman off minus the front end when a monte' carlo decided they needed the front grill. next up was the Sightseer 35J that we have loved since we bought it for the bunks and the layout. We are now looking to downsize as our travel needs have changed and are considering a winne navion 24V our something similar. When I think of all the RV's we have had I recall my Grand-Dad who was big on Airstreams because of the rallies, telling me that none of them are perfect and you will always be working on them. They all shake themselves apart eventually. Well, all except our 1963 Nimrod tent camper that is still in the barn in great shape and I can't bring myself to part with it!!!

for those with sprinter type C's

We are considering a Sprinter type C. Are the outside storage bins sheet metal or are they plastic/fiberglass. We currently have a 35' class A that has metal bins and they are a constant battle due to rust. Thanks!
